President- Samantha Li has been climbing for over 10 years and competed for 8 years on the Calgary Climbing Centres Pro team, including multiple Bouldering World Cups. She is best know for her high heel hooks and negative ape index. This T-Rex enjoys outdoor Bouldering, cycling for leg strength and car camping.
Vice President- Sara Bradley was introduced to trad climbing while living and working in the White Mountains of northern New Hampshire during her late 20s and early 30s. Sara loves the combination of the peacefulness of the outdoors and having to be focussed on the climb. Sara is a graduate engineer from the University of Waterloo and has operated a structural engineering design business based in Peterborough, Ontario since 2003. In 2018 she made the bold and exciting decision to move herself and her business to Whitehorse. She is excited to be back in an environment where there is a community of climbers not only getting out to climb, but involved in their community and promoting the sport to the youth. On the board she expects to be heavily involved in the ongoing efforts to bring a climbing facility to Whitehorse and to support Samantha, the new President. Climb On!
